Of these nominees, Bosun Tijani, renowned as the CEO and co-founder of CcHub, a highly influential incubator on the African continent, gained considerable attention from stakeholders in Nigeria’s tech ecosystem.
Bosun Tijani’s nomination as a Minister of Communications and Digital Economy is a significant milestone for Nigeria’s tech ecosystem. Unlike the usual trend of appointing civil servants or career politicians to this position, his nomination represents a shift towards recognizing the importance of the tech sector and involving key figures from within the industry in government roles.

Tijani’s impressive academic background, with two degrees from the University of Jos in Nigeria and an MSc. in Information Systems and Management from the Warwick Business School in England, demonstrates his dedication to education and skill development. His recent completion of a Ph.D. program in Innovation and Economic Development at the University of Leicester further reinforces his expertise in fostering growth and progress.

As the CEO and co-founder of CcHub, one of the most influential incubators in Africa, Tijani has played a vital role in driving tech advancement in the continent. CcHub’s expansion across Nigeria, Kenya, and Namibia showcases Tijani’s commitment to empowering young individuals with the necessary tools, communities, and capital to launch impactful ventures.
With CcHub’s billion naira growth fund, Tijani has made a significant impact on over 95 early-stage businesses, especially those focusing on innovation in Africa’s education and healthcare systems. His dedication and achievements have not gone unnoticed, as he was recognized as one of the 100 most influential people in Africa by New Africa Magazine in 2017.

Tijani’s nomination signifies the government’s willingness to consult and collaborate with the tech ecosystem, as demonstrated by the Nigeria Startup Act. Having him as a Minister of Communications and Digital Economy would provide the tech industry with a voice at the decision-making table and potentially lead to more significant support from the government in nurturing a thriving tech ecosystem in the country.
